Just an FYI. The 4th floor of the Value Parking Garage is now reserved for online parking only. Also booking online is about $10 cheaper than at the door. You can also consider the outdoor parking, which a tad cheaper, but if you are looking for something that is covered, Viscount (Value Parking Garage) is your best deal.

..With Park n Fly, I'm getting a cheap self park rate with corporate discount. I hope I don't have to leave the keys with them.
With self park, you keep your keys. Go early because the shuttle can be tardy at times. It can be up to 45 min late for pickup.

I'd use the value garage instead

Thanks! Good to know that. Value park garage early bird special is the cheapest amongst all pearson lots for the dates i'm looking at. I will either book that or park sleep fly which will cost $15 - $20 more but I get to sleep at a hotel near the airport a day early. Since my flight is at 7am, this will be convinient.

Hi All,

I'll be flying domestic in the 1st week of June out of Toronto Pearson Airport. I would like to park my car at/near the airport for roughly 6 days, because taking public transport from where I live to Pearson is not feasible. Any suggestions would be much appreciated!

I was thinking of parking at the Value Park Garage, however it seems they have the same total price for 6 or 7 days (weekly special), which comes out to $103 + booking fee of $3?

Are there any other options ? How is Skypark or Park n Fly ? I would like to avoid waiting for a shuttle to retrieve my car.

Thanks in Advance!
I use Direct Flight Parking since it is only $39 for the week and shuttle service is very quick.

Man all these 3rd party parking locations have poor reviews and some of them are quite scary. I'm going to bite the bullet and park at Pearson or at some hotel near pearson for (some) peace of mind.

Thanks for the suggestion though!

Good choices. Staying overnight, getting a wakeup cal and taking the hotel's shuttle after a good nights sleep is worth the extra few dollars for me. Regardless, have a great time.

Roam Mobility has one
Flight Center has one too I think
Google them??

Daily or Weekly only, on mid/Valet lots only

I recently find better value from SkyPark instead
Thanks, I think I will try Skypark, do I need to reserve my spot or just show up?

Just a cautionary note for those who park at the Viscount Value or other Airport lots. If the cost doesn't change, put in a later date/time than your scheduled time because if your plane is delayed and you can't get your car out of the lot by the scheduled time, they will charge you the hourly rate after your scheduled time. Had a major argument with them over this as I parked there for five days and the prepay rate worked out to be slight less than the weekly rate. I accidentally put 10am instead of 10 am on the prepayment (got mixed up on 24 hour clock) and when I went to leave, it asked me for more money such that I would've ended up paying more than the weekly rate even though I was there for only five days. Lesson learned they wouldn't charge me less for leaving early but they would charge me more for being late.

I would go as far as Park n Fly as I've parked with them in the past but like others have said, be early as the Shuttles can be tardy but the lots at Park n Fly are well lit at night and I've never had any issue.

The reviews on other like directflightparking and skypark and whateverPark are indeed scary to read both on Google (some cars were broken in).

As of late tbh, I've been using Pearson Viscount (Value Park Garage) if you book online and get a quote or get a week of indoor parking for me was $115 which is totally worth it knowing i can take the LINK Train and be near the airport.

A couple years ago I stopped being cheap for parking, delayed shuttles and excessive amounts of people pushed me over the line. I used to do Park'N Fly valet due to shuttle being super quick, but twice now I've parked at GTAA parking, once at the value park garage and the other right at terminal 3 (same exists for terminal 1). Booking online was only a couple bucks more than the pnf valet for parking at terminal 3 (I have access to a corporate code, if you have Perkopolis access you do too).

It is honestly the best experience ever to park at the airport and worry about nothing other then making sure you lock your car

Like cwb27 said, I also only used GTAA value garage and the Viscount because I had a code to try it out and haven't looked back. Even the economy lot which isn't too far from the airport or Viscount is around $70-85 for 10 days last time I used the quote which is actually cheaper than Park n Fly and others (mind you PnF does give Aeroplan points if that's what you're after )
